"An inspiration from the warmth and comfort of a friend," confides Akwele Suma of these earrings. She crafts the pair by hand-forming cylinders of rolled-up recycled paper. Flanked by sese wood beads, the earrings hang from brass wires.

The artist uses the paper at hand so paper colors will vary, making each design a unique example of handcrafted art. These beads receive a protective coat of clear nail polish.

"Subtle shades"

I really like the colors used in these earrings -- they are study and subtle and go well with a number of different outfits. I love that they are handcrafted and lightweight, as well.
